Hey. In 1979 The Malibu with a automatic came from the factory with TH200, TH250 and the TH350. All where short shaft units. All used the same cross member. The TH350 is the best trans for your Malibu. Doug

Hey. You could have your drive shaft shortened three inches for your TH350, Of course I assume yours has a six inch shaft. Doug

I see. Thats what mine was. Thanks. Since I already have my exhaust on the car(it was done 10 yrs ago) and it runs under the trans ,is there a way to strengthen up the mount?

I will have to look again at mine. I have 2 1/2 dual exhaust . The installer passed the drivers side pipe under the trans and out thru the hump along with the other pipe. It's tight but tucked up out of sight nicely.
